    I would definitely recommend using an XBOX 360 controller.

    i use a wired Xbox pad...

    Mouse and keyboard are suited for certain game types, such as RTS and FPS - but this type of game suits pads much better..


    You can pick a wired Xbox pad up cheaply, even more so if you get one second hand..

    It's really a matter of personal preference, I find xbox controllers very difficult to use, the few times i have used one, i felt like i needed 8 extra fingers.

    I prefer using a keybord and mouse, simply because i find it easier to use, plus the customization of the hotkeys is a big plus (not sure if you can customize the ****on mapping on a pad, don't think you can)

    I always use the 360 controller. Creed was really built around the puppeteerring concept from AC1, and since that's where I started with the game, that's what I'm used to.

    It does take some time to get used to the controller -- I felt the same way when I played AC1 the first time, but now that I've been using the controller for a few years for AC games as well as Batman, it's definitely the way to go and the way the game was designed to be played.

    I find it impossible to play with a controller. I use keyboard and a mouse.

    I've been playing these games with KB + M since the beginning. I don't think I could get used to a controller after all this time. I find the keyboard easier on the thumbs, too.
